Digging a well in Kenya & other projects

Friends,

I can't believe that in just 2 months (mid-May) I will be in Kenya again! I truly believe I left a part of my heart there the last time and I'm excited to return and unbelievably excited about the next project I'd like to work on for our community there!

God gave me a very clear vision of what to do on this trip and I need your help to make it happen!

We hope to dig a well in a community that currently has no access to clean water. As of right now, those in the community must walk to a river that has dirty and unsafe water and boil it for all their daily tasks. They are at risk for Typhoid, Cholera, Dysentery and more. My goal is to have the well funded by 4/15 so they can begin digging and it can be completed before the end of my trip.

I'm certain as you read this that you've already used your faucets in your home multiple times today. You've never questioned your water's safety or your ability to easily access it. In Kenya, safe water isn't just given to them...it must be made possible by non-profits such as ours that rely on donations from wonderful people like you who want to help others because they don't take it for granted that they were born in a country that provides for its people.

I'm beyond excited for this well because it means we all can be a part of something that is LIFE GIVING! As with other projects where we have met an immediate need (clothes, shoes, food, etc.) only to find those needs to be ongoing, this project's outreach will continue on for years and years to come and affect generation after generation!

God willing, while I'm there, I also have other projects in mind. We have a school that needs basic supplies, we have children who need to be treated for jiggers, we have roofs that need to be built, etc. So, I've set a goal that will insure that we can dig the well as well as make a few other projects happen but I'll leave that up to you and God as to what you all want to be a part of in Kenya! I'm just the delivery girl. :)

I've set up this site for easy access and tracking of my goals. However, they do charge a small fee for processing. If you'd like to make a tax-deductible donation directly to our non-profit, please let me know so I can track it in my goal and can make sure it is applied to this project. You can make it directly at www.tgdonline.com

I'm so excited for you to be a part of this with me. Your joy will be exponentially greater than any donation you give. I promise! I can't wait to share pictures and videos with you of the completed well and the community (and hopefully me as well) dancing in celebration around the well!

For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour my Spirit upon your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants.  Isaiah 44:3

Please contact me with any questions! I hope you will join me on this trip!
